- Do you need to engage employees with the 'burning platform' as to why change must happen?
- Do you need employees to not only understand the 'what' but also the 'why'?
- Do you need employees to accept their role in the transformation?
Business transformation requires employees to make dramatic changes to
what they do and how they do it, but employees will resist this level of
change without knowing reasons why they should, and agreeing to those reasons.
Leadership has the vision of what must change, but it is ultimately the
thousands of decisions and actions taken daily by employees that will determine
whether that vision is realized.
At Applied Learning, we have 10 years of experience in creating accelerated
learning programs that effectively engage employees in large transformation
efforts. The underlying philosophy of our approach is rather than tell people
what to think or what to do differently, give them a fun and engaging process
by which they can examine marketplace information. By exploring this marketplace
information with a group of peers, using a series of pre-designed dialogue
questions, the group will arrive at the appropriate conclusions for themselves.
"I will listen to what my manager has to say, but I will act on my own
As an organization rushes to adapt to the needs of the market, it relies
on each individual within the organization to deal with several levels
of change. How each individual deals with change is often the main factor
that determines whether they will be successful in the new environment.
The collective responses of everyone in the organization will determine
whether the company will be successful in the marketplace. By cultivating
an organizational culture of properly dealing with change, a company can
continuously transform itself and rely on it as a strategic advantage.
Clients have asked us to create custom Knowledge Maps to help employees
deal with change at several different levels.
Some companies want to focus their employees on the structural changes
going on within the company and what their role will be in the change
process and the new company.
Other companies want to focus on a personal change process, equipping
people with the skills and attitudes for dealing with ongoing change.
A customized solution would be designed to meet your company's organizational
goals and imperatives.
We will work with you to understand your business needs and develop an
appropriate solution that achieves those goals.
